How are you logging the traffic, just the intital hit, or each page view?

You would not want to log each an every page view directly to mysql, it is
better to use/customize usertrack, then in a cron job, log the lines (or a
summary of them) to a table. It was explained to me that using a mysql
table as a log for every page view would lock it for each insert and cause
slow downs
